The Undertaker was last seen at Survivor Series in November, where he and Kane defeated the Wyatt Family. There was no tease as to who Undertaker’s WrestleMania opponent would be on the show. As many speculates that this will be his final dance at the mega event, the burning question is who that lucky star would be to go toe to toe against the Deadman at the grandest stage of them all.
At this moment, there are no indications of the possible opponent. Though, since his last appearance, it was rumored that he will face the new face of fear Braun Strowman. At one time that may have been the plan. However, it doesn’t seem to be the plan at this point, as WWE hasn’t been pushing Strowman as hard as they were upon his debut, and the subsequent few weeks.
As per previous reports, WWE was planning the mega match between Cena and Taker. But that got cut short after Cena’s uncertainty of becoming available before the show. Though, in recent reports from Meltzer we have learnt that, if he is, and it’s clear well in advance that he’ll be able to, WWE wants him to wrestle The Undertaker, as the two men have never gone one-on-one at WrestleMania.
If Cena isn’t able to wrestle on the show, then it’s unclear what WWE will do with Undertaker. The Phenome is in full force though in his preparation for the Dallas Mega show. Joe DeFranco posted a video to Instagram, showing The Deadman lifting heavy weights. “Deadlifts 405×3 from pins,” he captioned the video. No doubt about it, the fifty-year-old is certainly looking in excellent condition.
